The Veterans Block Party will be highlighting all the amazing work, activism and results being produced by the incredible military nonprofits community throughout Sarasota and beyond – Operation Warrior Resolution, SRQ Vets, Vets 2 Success, Operation Hemingway, and the Military Officers Association. Each one of these organizations provide military veterans and their families a wide variety of essential resources, networking help and familiar camaraderie in their time of need, emergency or otherwise. The main host of the event is Operation Warrior Resolution which provides peace to veterans in distress with holistic options, and the Street Yoga is to highlight Operation Warrior Resolution's relationship with The Dharma Footprint Project, which provides veterans with yoga to relieve stress
